OK, we may not have Australia, but we have Cameroon.

And yes, I had to look that up.

Doesn't Korean fly to SYD and BNE, thereby giving SOME coverage?

Still, unless the Thai rumours prove true (they certainly defended viemently any such thoughts in the pass when SQ got added to *A), I have just about 0% chance of ever flying a SkyTeam partner.

Unless of course, my next holiday is planned for Cameroon

Yeah, KE flies 777s to SYD, but, um, maybe there is a point where SkyMiles points just aren't worth it!

The SkyTeam alliance is extending its services to include air cargo with the launch of the world's largest cargo airline alliance, SkyTeam Cargo.

The SkyTeam Cargo airlines - Aeromexico Cargo, Air France Cargo, Delta Air Logistics and Korean Air Cargo - are partnering to provide shippers with access to a global route network, common service options, sales and service standards, and an interfaced information technology system.

Skyteam continues to "ROCK!"

The entire SkyTeam Alliance (AeroMexico, Air France, Delta and Korean Air) signed an agreement creating an international pilot alliance called the "Skyteam Pilot Alliance" (SPA).
